What's new with WELS Parish Nursing:
Nurses in the WELS: A Gathering of Professionals
On October 24th the WELS Parish Nurses hosted a Gathering meant for all WELS nurses and students at Wisconsin Lutheran College. The theme to guide our day was "Always Be Prepared" taken from 1 Peter:3:15. Not able to join us that day? See the postings via Livestream!

First Parish Nurse Course begins!
An online continuing education parish nurse course was developed and offered this fall by Wisconsin Lutheran College for both the experienced RN and novice RN student offering an opportunity to learn of the Christian understanding of Parish Nursing and gather the tools needed to start or join a parish nurse ministry in your own congregation! Registration for this class is now closed. We have 14 nurses registered for this first class in 2015 and they are from WI, MN, MT, WY, FL, NV and Antigua! Prayerful consideration is being given to potential future offerings of the course. Let us know if you have any interest...It is never too early to begin planning for next year, both for us and for you in your own congregation. Please keep these nurses and their beginning parish nurse ministries in your prayers!
